Embrace Your Body Type

Hey Glamour Girls! Over the weekend I attended a “What to wear event” presented by I am woman. At the event they talked about embracing your body type and dressing your body according to the proportions of your body.  We need to focus more on our shape and not our height and weight. Each of us is unique and our bodies are too.

The speaker categorized four general body types; pear, rectangle, apple, and hourglass. You might be one category or you may fall into two categories.  Once you determine your body shape you can begin to consider with fashion trends to embrace and which to avoid. Everyone is not meant to look the same and as women we need to understand that.  

Pear Body Shape- Your lower body is wider than your upper body. Your bottom is rounded and your waist is well-defined. Your best assets are your shoulders, torso, and flat stomach.  Emphasize your waist and arms, add volume to your shoulders and upper body and minimize your hips.

Rectangle Body Shape- The waist, hip and shoulder widths are similar and are usually on the slim side. Slender rectangles have an athletic look about them.  Your best assets are your arms and legs. Create curves and show off slender legs and arms.

Apple Body Shape- Most of your weight accumulates above the hips, which are narrow. Your back, ribs, and shoulders are broad, and you may feel wider than other body types. Your best asset is your legs. Extend the torso, show off your legs and use fashion to create the illusion of a waist.

Hourglass Body Type- Your shoulders and hips are similar in proportion and set off by a tiny waist. Your best assets are your curves. Show off your curves without going overboard.

This is not my personal opinion. I just thought I would share with you ladies what was presented at the event. My message to you is embrace your body type! Accept the way you look or do something about it.

Today is the last day to enter the blog giveaway!!!!
